In a letter to Dean supporters on Tuesday, Dean's campaign manager Joe Trippi called on "the grassroots to show the power of the movement you've built by helping to re-elect Leonard Boswell, the lone Democrat in Iowa's Congressional delegation and a top target of Karl Rove and the Republican National Committee."
The Dean Internet-driven appeal on behalf of Boswell brought in more than $51,000 in two days from 1,374 Dean supports, with an average contribution of $38.
We have hit $50,000!!! I know I sound like a broken record but "HOLY COW!" This response is overwhelming.
In the last few hours I have gotten so many emails from friends and family all over the country who are excited about this project. Everyone is extremely impressed with your organization, passion, and drive. I could not agree with them more.
